James Logan-Washington game preview

Capsules with more information to come later, but here’s some stuff to chew on.

 

The final two undefeated Mission Valley Athletic League teams square off tonight at 7 at James Logan High.
Visiting Washington, which started out the year with four straight nonleague losses, have won four straight in MVAL action and brings in a 4-4 overall mark and a 4-0 league record.
It’s been almost the same story for Logan, which went 0-4 in nonleague games. The Colts’ first win of the season came in Week 3, a 17-3 win over Newark Memorial. Logan enters with a 3-4 overall record and is 3-0 in MVAL play. Read the rest of this entry »

OAL playoff picture

While we’ll be starting our posts of breaking down the NCS playoff picture next week, I figured I’d get a jumpstart with the OAL since it’s not nearly as complicated, although it’s not as cut and dry as years past.
